Adam Hood Unveils ‘The Shape of Things’

Carnival Music

Opelika, Ala., native Adam Hood‘s ‘The Shape of Things,’ out today (Oct. 11) on Carnival Music, is a blend of country-roots, blues and soul music that may remind listeners of material by the likes of Jack Ingram and the Zac Brown Band. The singer-songwriter penned or co-penned all of the album’s 12 tracks.

Adam’s journey to country music is thanks in no small part to Miranda Lambert, who was so impressed with him when she caught his show in Gruene, Texas (thanks to her car having broken down) that she asked him to open a string of shows for her. She also soon introduced him to producer and Carnival Music partner, Frank Liddell, who signed him to the Carnival Music Publishing company and record label. Since that time, Adam’s tunes have been covered by several artists, including Lee Ann Womack and the Eli Young Band.

Adam grew up the son of a corporate forester and spent nearly a decade in Alabama, toiling as a land surveyor while also occasionally delivering arrangements for his mother’s flower shop. In 2001, he self-produced and financed a live album, ’21 to Enter,’ forsaking his “real job” to hit the road as a touring artist. In March 2007, he had released ‘A Different Groove,’ helmed by acclaimed guitarist and producer Pete Anderson.

The performer raised his profile considerably with a recent stint on Willie Nelson‘s Country Throwdown tour. He’ll continue to tour throughout Texas and the Southeast this fall. Click here for a list of dates and cities where you can see Adam perform live.
